I've been swapping!

I live for symmetry. Seriously. I have to really concentrate to do "random" stamping! And normally, symmetry does not make for great card design. But in this case, I just couldn't make the card do anything else! I think it looks like a Christmas present! (My kids are getting the Wii for Christmas--don't tell them.) Free Smiley Courtesy of

Anyway, this is my contribution to the Convention Quality Swap #5, hosted by Lyssa. I love the fact that the Top Note die matches the Curly Label punch and stamp set! To make the texture on the Kiwi Kiss Top Note, I used crumpled up wax paper dabbed on the ink pad and then on the paper. The wrinkly-er, the better! The top blue layers are popped up on dimensionals to give it a little more depth. Oh, and I sponged ink on the bottom layers of Pacific Point and Baja Breeze, too!
